While a $1K price increase over the mark 1 version will prevent me from buying the lens, I have a feeling that once we start seeing the tests and image quality of this thing, people who make money from their images will have no problem laying out $2300 for it.

I would go with the 7D. Right now you can get the body at Adorama for $1300 (check the link on CR). The 17-55 2.8 is also a nice choice for fast glass but for me personally, I would not spend $1K for a lens that I could only use on a crop sensor body unless you never plan on going FF. A nice alternative if you are not opposed to third party glass is the Sigma 17-50 2.8 which is about $400 less than the 17-55. Good luck with whatever you decide!
I subscribe to the UK magazines Digital Camera and Digital Photo in particular for their focus on Photoshop techniques and projects. However, as traveller said, they tend to recycle content after a while so I will probably not renew one or maybe both.
